One of the four men who were arrested in Las Piñas City on Monday for illegal possession of firearms and explosives turned out to be the leader of a gang involved in gunrunning, drug-pushing and robberies in Manila and Bulacan province, the police said.

Senior Supt. Adolfo Samala, the city’s chief of police, said Reynaldo Ramos, 34, led the Rey Burgos Group while using the aliases Poklat, Rey Ramos Burgos and Anthony de la Cruz Miranda, based on records in Camp Crame and the Manila Police District.
